Best alternative to utorrent

I used to use utorrent and suffered little in the transition towards qtorrent. I've triend other clients, this is the best, frequently updated, non invasive, free software, alternative that exists.

Simple, Powerfull, Cross-Platform and NO Ads

about qBittorrent · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

I was accustomed to use uTorrent, but now the screen is full of ADS... Hate it... Then I tried out Transmission but it doesn`t have "natively" the shutdown PC option when downloads completes. You can do it using scripts or plug-ins, but I wanted something simpler and easier. Now I'm using qBittorrent which is just PERFECT because it has "natively" the shutdown PC option when downloads completes and the way it handles the Magnet Links is the simplest I've seen. For me, the best option out there. I recommend it.

Does the job, lightweight

And it doesn't have a bunch of adware either. I used to use Vuze when it was Azurius and liked it ... but things changed and Vuze sold out (UX sucks too now).

I now use this full-time. It's one of my favorites. It has everything you could want and more. There's only really one or two things missing in my opinion and that's a seed/leech count for the RSS feed items & the ability to force start a seed or leech that doesn't apply to the item count in the queue. It has SO many options & it's powerful, while remaining super light & not a resource hog at all. It's a brilliant piece of software, in my opinion & I absolutely love it. The RSS features are fantastical.

Good alternative to µTorrent but...

about qBittorrent and µTorrent · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

strong points :

  • Almost all µTorrent functions are here
  • Doesn't have any ads or toolbar install (since Bittorrent bought µTorrent, ads appeared)
  • Stable
  • Open Source
  • Dev is open to suggestions
  • Small footprint (max 50mb or ram used)

Downsides :

There's only one negative point for me, qBittorrent is banned on several private trackers, that prevents me from using it as my main client.

Well, in free versions of uTorrent and bitTorrent you actually can disable ads and toolbars, it takes a few clicks, though.

Really? Is that true? I have been wondering why some things wont download.

Wow, even I can use it

about qBittorrent · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

Wow, even I can figure it out, I am a rookie and it took me about 5 mins to configure qbittorrent and i love it. I use it mainly to search for torrents,then i use my Real-Debrid account to do all the downloading for me, sometimes I download on the client just to give back! so if you're like me(rookie torrenter) then qbittorrent is for you!

Best bittorrent client available

about qBittorrent · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

Been using it since late 2015. Better than uTorrent, generations better than Transimssion or Deluge, and has evey feature I've ever needed in a bittorrent client and then some. Works superbly, let's you download torrents in sequential order, let's you organise/label/manage your torrents easily and has been flawless since I started using it. Oh, it's also X-platform. Amazing bit of software.

Simply great

Since version 3 it has become an effective, perhaps the best alternative to µTorrent: it's very light, it got all the necessary features, and it's also open source and totally ad-free.

Good open source client

about qBittorrent · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

I tried this out as an alternative to uTorrent (I have posted a comment on the page about why) and it seems to be doing well. Very low CPU usage, while retaining a simple uTorrent-like GUI as well as all features (PeX, DHT, Magnet, etc) that are present in uTorrent, minus the bloat. Anyone looking for an open source windows torrent client should try this out.

about qBittorrent and Deluge · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

Best open source torrent client in my opinion. In opposite of Deluge it has no daemon, but a much more faster GUI and web interface in windows system. It has all needed features like magnet links, DHT, peer exchange etc, an ajax web interface, labels and such things. The author is quite active and does a good community job.
